Did you know that combination skin is the most common skin type out there and it’s the most difficult to deal with?
The key is balance and the Cleanser-Toner-Moisturizer routine.
Essentially, you want to avoid ingredients that treat skin too harshly or are too heavy, because they’ll upset the skin’s natural barrier. Choose an organic cleanser that gets in deep to clear pores, kill bacteria, and soothe inflamed skin while simultaneously adding moisture into the skin.
Look for moisture-boosting aloe vera, soothing lavender, and calendula, with antioxidant-rich tea tree oils.
An ideal toner for combination skin would have many benefits: they balance the skin’s pH levels, clear away any remaining oil or debris, and in some cases, add long-lasting hydration to revive, calm, and treat dry complexions.
Look for acne-fighting ingredients like willow bark and tea tree oil and acne-safe ingredients to smoothen and treat dry areas like glycerin and aloe vera.
It’d be miraculous to find a single moisturizer that treats the oily T-zone and dry cheeks without aggravating the situation. The best moisturizer is light on the skin while effectively sealing the moisture into the skin.
Look for sunflower and jojoba seed oils to help smooth and heal your skin, and vitamin E and B to help protect from environmental stressors.
It doesn’t have to be difficult to take care of your combination skin. Identifying products with the right ingredients will help in balancing your skin naturally.
